Netflix allows people living together in a household to share a single account. To enhance everyone’s viewing experience, you can create up to five individual profiles. Each profile offers personalized recommendations and an independent viewing history.

As your household changes, you can easily manage your profiles. Here’s our guide to deleting a Netflix profile on your computer, mobile device, or smart TV to make room for new ones.

Before Deleting a Netflix Profile

Before deleting a profile from your Netflix account, here are some key things to keep in mind:

  • Deleting a profile does not affect your overall Netflix subscription or downloads.
  • The main profile on your Netflix account cannot be deleted unless you cancel your account.
  • To delete the current profile, you need to switch to another profile.
  • Deleting a profile is permanent. This means all watch history, recommendations, and all other related data linked to that profile will be removed.
  • If you want to keep your profile settings, consider transferring your Netflix profile to a new account instead of deleting it.

How to Watch Netflix After Your Profile Is Deleted

Netflix allows both ad-free and ad-supported users to download movies and TV shows through its app. However, these downloads can only be played within the Netflix app and cannot be transferred to other applications or devices. If you lose access to your Netflix account due to profile deletion, all downloaded content becomes inaccessible. To ensure continued enjoyment of your favorite titles, consider downloading them directly to your device using a professional Netflix downloader.

Pazu Netflix Video Downloader is a desktop program for Netflix users to download Netflix videos without the Netflix app. It can bypass the DRM from Netflix and download movies and TV shows from Netflix to MP4 and MKV. The converted files maintain high quality, up to 1080p, and retain 100% of the original subtitles and audio tracks. Additionally, it removes all Netflix download limitations such as expiration issues and device restrictions.
